Towards the end of last year, Nicole of Sister's Choice Quilts and Allyson of Fat Cat Quilts hosted a sew along, The Red and Cream Snowball Sew Along. The pattern is Leftovers Again? by Evelyn Sloppy from her 40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts book. The sew along was fun and some of us even swapped creams. The piecing was a breeze and my quilt went together easily.
I re-named my quilt "He Knows When You Are Sleeping" because I added a few Santas in the mix.
I took the flimsy to the quilter and pretty much put the whole thing out of mind, since I didn't need the quilt anytime soon.
Well I just picked the quilt up from Dawn at The Sewing Basket and am so happy to have it home on my red couch.
The back is cream Moda flannel, very warm and cozy feeling.
Dawn used a pattern that had the same look and feel as the Santas beards in the border fabric.
I loved making this quilt, am pleased with how it all came together, and am giving it away.
I'm wanting to make a quilt for every member of my family, my Dad loves Santas and all Christmas decorations in general, so once I got this quilt home, I realized it should really belong to my Dad. I'm a little sad to see it go, which is a first for me, I've never had any trouble giving my quilts away, but I'm sure once I see him sound asleep in his recliner, under this quilt, I'll feel pretty good about the whole thing.
Cooper thinks it's the right thing to do too......
or at least I think that's what that goofy face means......
